Master list

25,000 words of fic posted! It's been fun, everyone. Perhaps it's because we tackled some new characters and themes, but we didn't have a single correct guess as who wrote what! [ETA: Correction: kellychambliss correctly guessed squibstress as the author of "Sweep." Apologies to Kelly! And congratulations on guesing the author--this one had several of us stumped. /ETA] We did, however, have some wonderfully inventive, satisfying stories. Thanks to all, readers and participants, for the fabulous fic and for all the love in comments!

ETA: Participants, feel free to repost to your journals and other comms now!

Guessing game

That's a wrap! With today's post, we've come to an end of the Deathly Hallows Challenge. Reveals will occur on Monday. Right now, you have the weekend to catch up reading and make some guesses as to which of our authors wrote which ficlet. (You can leave guesses in screened comments to this post, and I'll report on the results on Monday. If any writers want to offer any incentives to guessers, feel free to leave those in a comment, as well, and I'll unscreen your comment so folks can see.)

To help you get started, we have twelve stories written by eleven excellent authors (yes, one person wrote two): albalark, celandineb, islandsmoke, kellychambliss, liliths_requiem, liseuse, magnetic_pole, rotaryphones, sleeper6, squibstress, westernredcedar.

See you all again on Monday!

Author's notes: This story is a crossover with Cornelia Funke’s Dragon Rider. If you are unfamiliar with the story, there is a plot synopsis here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Rider_(novel) . Due to the fact that this story expanded to fill available time, the Beta-Stick™ has been applied only by me, myself and I. If you notice something amiss, I’d appreciate hearing about it!

The days since the light disappeared seemed numberless.Collapse )
